Have a read of our top 4 tips when creating a poster for a conference, meeting, seminar, etc. We have also created a simple sample poster using PowerPoint, click to here download for free.
Include the basics: title (+/- subtitle), author(s), introduction, method, results, discussion, conclusion, references.
Colours: keep it simple, your poster should not include more than 3 different colours. Blue and white are great colours i.e. motorway sign colours. Also, green and red colour blindness are the most common form of colour blindness, so try to avoid putting these together on a slide or graph.
Declutter, ‘less is more’; make sure your poster can easily be ready from 1-2 meters away.
Opinions; share your poster with friends, family, mentors, junior and senior doctors. Get their opinion and advice.
